The following can be read at Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoums website:

sheikh mohammed UAE

“In his capacity as the Ruler of Dubai, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has ordered the cancellation of all public New Year’s celebrations in Dubai, due to be held on Wednesday night.

The cancellation comes in solidarity with the Palestinian people, who are currently enduring death, suffering and destruction in Gaza.

Sheikh Mohammed ordered relevant authorities to implement this decision and undertake the necessary steps to make the order known to all concerned parties.

Hats off to you Sheikh Mohammed. It is nice to see this solidaric gesture in times like these when most of the world is merely watching as the blood is flowing on the streets of Gaza. I just heard that Bahrain is also following this example. I am quite impressed and very pleased I must say. More about that can be read here:
